I decided to try out a fiction book tasting with my 4th graders. I made up a "menu", pulled a ton of different chapter books, and set up some classical music on Pandora. This particular class has been challenging to engage and have them stay focused and working independently on most activities we have done this year. As you can see, they were incredibly focused and engaged throughout our entire book tasting! They took new books home and wrote thoughtful responses on their menus! Success!
I'm looking forward to doing a nonfiction tasting with these kiddos next week!
